    Plaisir De Merle Sauvignon Blanc Case - 6 x 750ml

    Established by the French huguenots in 1693 on the slopes of the Simonsberg mountains between Paarl and Franschhoek, Plaisir De Merle is a rare gem. A distell showpiece, this 974 hector estate in Simondium, Paarl, has earned international acclaim for it's white and red wines. About 400 hectors are planted with a variety of noble grape cultivars such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Malbec and Pinot Noir, and an area of only about 80 hectors of prime vineyards has been set aside for the Plaisir De Merle cellar. Winemaker Niel Bester who in 2012 celebrated 20 years as cellar master at Plaisir De Merle, has gained fame in producing classically styled yet accessible wines. He attributes the success of his wines to being able to work with great fruit coming from a very unique terrain and the invaluable input from his viticulture team. The vintage The 2014 vintage was preceded by a very wet and cold winter. Cool temperatures during spring resulted in a slightly later and longer ripening season. Despite warm conditions early February 2014, the grapes were healthy and bursting with flavour. The vineyards The diversity of the soils, slopes and elevations is closely linked with the quality of Plaisir De Merle wines. Well-drained weathered granite soils (predominantly Tukulu and Hutton) with good water retention allow minimal irrigation and most vineyards are dry land. The Sauvignon Blanc vines on the farm, ranging in age from 13 to 17 years old, are grown in Hutton soil between 300m and 500m above sea level on the south-eastern slopes of the Simonsberg. The Sauvignon Blanc originating from darling came from 11 year-old vines on the northerly slopes, in deep red, well drained Oak leaf soils. 

    Grapes were harvested by hand and sourced from three different vineyards two on plaisir de merle and one in the cooler region of darling. The plaisir de merle grapes produced flavours such as passion fruit and tropical fruit, while the grapes from the cooler climate provided the more traditional greener characters. The result is a full spectrum of flavours, tropical aromas, passion fruit, spanspek and some green fig. Viticulturist: Freddie le Roux The winemaking The grapes were harvested by hand at between 23.5 degrees celsius and 24.6 degrees celsius balling in February. A limited period of skin contact (virtually nothing to a maximum of four hours) with the must being settled at 4 degrees celsius and kept on the fine settling lees for three days (this enriches the wine with the typical varietal flavours). The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at between 13-18 degrees celsius for about three weeks. The wine was left on the lees for another two months and received no wood contact. 

    Wine Maker's Comments:
    - Colour Light green 
    - Bouquet Delicate floral and tropical fruit aromas, with hints of green olives and winter melon. The enticing nose carries through to the taste and holds it's own all the way.
    - Taste Fresh, full and rich with flavours of tropical fruit and nettles in the initial flavour. This follows through fresh tropical flavours of passion fruit, pineapple and the typical green hints of the cultivar. Long and lingering aftertaste. Ageing process and potential this wine will develop well even after 12 to 24 months. It is beautifully aromatic, floral, crisp and fresh to enjoy now. 
    - Food Pairing: Enjoy with a variety of light dishes such as a seafood salad, pastas or fish - or it's a delight served chilled on it's own.
